J.C.R. Licklider

Inductee

Posthumous Recipient In 1962, Dr. Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider formulated the earliest ideas of global networking in a series of memos discussing an “Intergalactic Computer Network.” Both well-liked and well-respected, he demonstrated an amazing prescience many times over. His original and far-...

Glenn Ricart

Inductee

Glenn Ricart set up the first Internet Exchange point in 1988. Located in College Park, Maryland, it connected the original federal TCP/IP networks and the first U.S. commercial and non-commercial Internet networks. Later he helped extend that interconnection point to a Washington metropolitan area...

Howard Frank

Inductee

Dr. Howard Frank co-wrote a proposal that won the 1969 contract to design the network structure for the ARPAnet. He also conducted the original topological analysis for the ARPAnet, evaluating the network’s performance and reliability, and studied how the technology could be applied to the larger...

Bob Metcalfe

Inductee

Dr. Bob M. Metcalfe received the United States National Medal of Technology in 2005 for "leadership in the invention, standardization, and commercialization of Ethernet."  He began pioneering the Internet in 1970 by building a high-speed network interface and protocol software between a packet...

Danny Cohen

Inductee

In 1967, Danny Cohen developed the first real-time visual flight simulator on a general purpose computer. He also developed the first real-time radar simulator. His flight simulator work led to the development of the Cohen-Sutherland computer graphics line clipping algorithms, created with Ivan...

Lawrence Roberts

Inductee

Dr. Roberts designed and managed the first packet network, the ARPANET (the precursor to the Internet). At that time, in 1967, Dr. Roberts became the Chief Scientist of ARPA taking on the task of designing, funding, and managing the radically new communications network concept of packet switching....

Donald Davies

Inductee

Posthumous Recipient Donald Davies was one of the inventors of packet switching computer networking. He coined the term 'packet' and today’s Internet can be traced back directly to this origin. Other scientists also came to the same conclusion at about the same time. In 1947, after learning about...

Leonard Kleinrock

Inductee

Dr. Leonard Kleinrock pioneered the mathematical theory of packet networks, the technology underpinning the Internet. For his enormous contribution to understanding the power of packet networks he was honored with the Charles Stark Draper Award as one of the fathers of the Internet, along with...

Peter Kirstein

Inductee

In the early 70s, Professor Kirstein started the first European ARPANET node with transatlantic IP connectivity, and has been involved ever since with European and transatlantic collaborations on IP networking research. Most of the collaborations have been with both industrial and academic partners...

Charles Herzfeld

Inductee

Charles Herzfeld served as director of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) in the 1960s. Under his leadership, he recognized the importance of computers and oversaw the decision for the creation of ARPANET, which eventually became the Internet. Born in Vienna, he came to the US in the...
